PROPOSED AND APPROVED: Description of Zone Changes for P.S. 106, P.S. 194 and P.S. 567 in Effect for 2013-14 School Year

Proposal Information

On October 16, 2012, Community Education Council 11 voted to change the current zone for P.S. 106, P.S. 194, and P.S. 567 beginning in September 2013.  The approved zone changes for the 2013-2014 school year may be found in the maps provided below. 

 

Why did the CEC approve this zone change?

  • The Department of Education plans to create a zone for  P.S. 567, in building X127 located at 1560 Purdy Street, Bronx, NY 10462 in September 2013
  • The zone change provides a new elementary zone for P.S. 567

 

What changes should families expect as a result of this re-zoning?

  • Some students previously zoned for P.S. 194 will now be zoned for P.S. 567 beginning in September 2013.
  • While the zone boundary of P.S. 567 includes a portion of the current P.S. 106 zone, there are no students living in the portion that will be zoned to P.S. 567 beginning in September 2013.

 

What will this mean for my family?

  • The proposed changes would impact only incoming Kindergarten students or students that are new to the system.  All currently enrolled students may remain at their school.  As stated in Chancellor’s Regulation A-101, Kindergarten students would be admitted in the following order of priority:

 

  • First Priority. Zoned students with verified siblings who will be enrolled in grades 1-5 in the school as of September 2013.

 

  • Second Priority. Zoned students without siblings applying to the zoned school

 

  • Third Priority. Non-zoned students with verified siblings who will be enrolled in grades 1-5 in the school as of September 2013:

                                                a. Within district first, then

                                                b. Out of district

 

  • Fourth Priority. Non-zoned students without siblings:

                                                a. Within district first, then

                                                b. Out of district

 

*Current in zone siblings who would be zoned out based on the proposed lines will be grandfathered as an in-zone sibling.

 

Where can I go for more information?

 

New, Approved Zones (2013-2014):

The solid background colors represent the former zone boundary. The dark blue outline represents the proposed zone boundaries. All zone lines run down the center of the street unless otherwise specified. Based on this proposal, starting in 2013-2014, the zone a family lives in is determined by each dark blue outlined polygon.
